Received this from a friend in Redondo Beach
"David Perdue was on his way to sneak in some surfing before work Thursday morning when police flagged him down. They asked who he was and where he was headed, then sent him on his way."
"Seconds later, Perdue's attorney said, a Torrance police cruiser slammed into his pickup and officers opened fire; none of the bullets struck Perdue."
"His pickup, police later explained, matched the description of the one belonging to Christopher Jordan Dorner — the ex-cop who has evaded authorities after allegedly killing three and wounding two more. But the pickups were different makes and colors. And Perdue looks nothing like Dorner: He's several inches shorter and about a hundred pounds lighter. And Perdue is white; Dorner is black."
"I don't want to use the word buffoonery but it really is unbridled police lawlessness," said Robert Sheahen, Perdue's attorney. "These people need training and they need restraint."

I watched the National news last night and neither the story about the guy getting shot at in Torrance, nor the one about the 2 little, old, ladies getting shot up on Saturday were mentioned. The LAPD is goin ape. Bad Craziness, they are definitely keeping those stories off the National front page; but theyíre making huge play on the local channels and print. Canít have the citizenry thinking that the cops are as dangerous as Dorner. Like all San Diegans, I consider anything North of the Cristianitos exit to be Los Angeles, so Iím a gonna Stay out of Malibu Lebowski.

This guy is going to be a rich man...plenty of surf trips headed his way, courtesy of the City of Los Angeles.
What a bunch of idiots. Wrong color and make of truck even.
Nice aim BTW, half of the them are in the tailgate.
shoot first, ask questions later. If you have a pickup truck, watch out! You fit the description and could be shot on sight.
